The World Cup winner has been lucky enough to play with stars at Arsenal, Chelsea and, of course, Barcelona, and can boast an incredible list of team-mates, both past and present.

As you can see, not only Flamini, but Gilberto Silva is also singled out for praise. They’re both undoubtedly good players, perhaps even great players in their day. But better than Xavi and Iniesta?
Is it just us, or is Cesc absolutely off his nut?
